Excessively high CRP levels

Has anyone noticed a correlation between high CRP levels and PFFD. My level has been astronomical, but the doctor has run many tests and found nothing to explain them. She has now decided that perhaps they are related to my birth defect. Since CRP is given off by the liver to offset high levels of inflammation in your body, her theory is that the defect has created an ongoing state of inflammation that my liver is constantly battling. CRP levels are also used to determine heart disease, etc., the results can be misleading and frightening. I haven't found any research conducted on this. Thought someone else might have run into the same condition.

By CRP I assume you mean https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C-reactive_protein . I've not heard of anything like that.
